That's where we're saying, alright, we understand the context and how it fits into a neighborhood, into a city, into a region, and we wanna be sort of helpful in that and be aware of the advantages of tying into those systems, so tying into transit systems, tying into bike lanes, tying into existing road structures and really kind of being useful, seeing those as useful systems that can enhance our project and a way that our project can enhance those systems, so being sort of super aware of what those systems are and how the project can either be helpful to those systems or be not enhancing those systems, so the idea of being very aware of what is going in the context and then understanding how that impact us. So an example with TOD might be where the front door is, where do people come in and out of the building. If I have a situation where I've got a very important corner with very big bus lines that go back and forth on a set of streets, and I have a project over here and it's a kinda big project and maybe there's another building here that's somebody else's.
